Plane Finder 3D tracks flights live around the world in 3D airspace.
A brand new way to view live air traffic, it’s fascinating to watch real time travel patterns around the world.
Why not watch the planes stacking up to land at your favorite airport, or see planes “follow the sun” across the Atlantic. What time do different countries and continents come alive?
Once you’ve found some interesting air space, use the ARKit feature to bring the planes right into your living room!
Simply spin the globe and zoom in to find something interesting to explore. If you’re looking for a specific flight, just type the flight number into search. Or type a place or airport into search to zoom straight there.
Tap on a plane to see Departure and Arrival Airports, Flight Number, Registration and Airline as well as Altitude, Speed and Heading.
With another tap you can even join a plane in flight and whiz around it for some stunning aerial views.
Share your screenshots with friends and family, maybe your flight passing over your home?
Already a Plane Finder user? Tap on a plane and there’s a handy button to switch into the main Plane Finder app straight to the same plane on a traditional map where you can drill down into all the extra data we know you love.
Plane Finder 3D uses the same trusted flight tracking data that powers Plane Finder, the original live plane tracking app top ranking since 2009.
● Full 3D models for over 450 of the most popular airports in the world! Pinch and zoom down to see terminals and runways.
● Brand new labels, making it easier to read flight numbers and airport names
● Switched to Apple's Metal framework (for the nerds) for improved performance
● It's now much easier to zoom into aircraft on the ground and inspect them at airports
● All visible aircraft are now colored based on the airline they're flying for
● Propellers and rotor blades can now be seen when zoomed out on the map
● Improved lighting and rendering for aircraft models
● It's now possible to zoom-in further when following an aircraft for an even closer view
● Dramatic performance increases for older devices (and newer ones, too)
Ratings and Reviews
Very good, needs features
It’s really very good app, is captivating and a lot of fun to use. But it suffers greatly from the lack of ability to tap on the screen to get information about flights around the flight if you’re tracking. For example you’re looking at a flight in 3-D and you can see other plans ahead of it but when you tap on those planes you’re directed to the information on that plane and it’s pretty hard to get back to the original flight that you were tracking. So they don’t make it easy for you to stick with one flight but understand what’s going on around that.
The AR implementation as it currently is is pretty useless. It basically puts the typography on the surface in front of you but navigating his rudimentary and a lot of the ability you would expect isn’t there.
So yeah it’s worth the five dollars and I suspect the developers have plans to address the navigation issues
Great App and Some Suggestions
This is a really great app for anyone interested in aviation. Though however there could be some improvements made. First you could add more types of aircrafts. I don’t believe that Boeing 737s fly across the Atlantic regularly. You could add planes such as the Boeing 747 and the Airbus A380. Another suggestion is that you could add more detail to the information on the aircraft. Particularly things like the model, time when it departed and future arrival time, and if the aircraft is private or commercial. There’s other bug fixes that aren’t extremely important as well. There are some things that wouldn’t need to be necessary but I think would be cool to see. Maybe 3D buildings in larger cities and information about different airport. Overall this is a great app and I hope you continue to improve it.
Thank you for your feedback, we are improving Plane Finder 3D all of the time so please look out for updates!
We'd love to hear more of your suggestions directly so please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Neat, but missing flight info
This is a fun way to visualize flights...just needs to be cleaned up a bit:
Seems to be missing flight information for a lot of flights (see “currently no journey data to display” quite a lot).
Also looks like aircraft altitude is not being mapped into the 3D space correctly. Tracked the same flight in this and FlightRadar24....flightradar showed the aircraft correctly on the ground after landing, this shows the plane still 2000 feet in the air over KLAS.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
